Pinballx 64bit - DirectOutput Plugin

Recommended Posts

Just installed the 64 bit version of Pinballx.  Install was easy and appears to work just fine.

One question, does anyone know if there is (or will be) a 64 bit plugin for the DirectOutput framework?  The 32 bit version does not appear to work with the 64 bit version of PInballx.

Actually it does not work, and it is because of the incompatibility of 32bit and 64bit programs and plugins. DOF could  be compiled 64bit but then VP and B2S will stop working when operating in 32bit mode. I suggest to install PinballX forced 32bit when using DOF or B2S plugin, unfortunately all 64bit advantages get lost then!

Did you click Ignore or try deleting or renaming Flash.ocx in D:\PinballX\ and running the installation again?

Does the file exist in the location? The setup should only try to install it if it doesn't exist so I am a little confused here.

I would just change persmissions (take ownership) on the file then delete it then try again.  its obviously got confused mixing between the 32 bit and 64 bit version.

You can get DOF to work with 64-bit programs. I have it working on my custom 64-bit front end "Tilt". It does require some registry tweaking. The problem is how the COM server is registered. The PinballX Plugin probably needs re-compiled as 64-bit as well as it is loaded by PinballX.

See: https://techtalk.gfi.com/32bit-object-64bit-environment/

I'll see if I can try PinballX again. I moved to my custom front end since PinballX didn't support 4k very well, but that has been 6 months ago now.

I cant find your front end ( i wanted to take a look) but I am personally running 4k now and have no issues. I have 4 displays going (with real DMD) and its pretty much 60fps for me.
